Homemade Baby Food Pouches

Homemade Baby Food Pouches

Does anyone else have a little one that LOVES food? We started Olivia on solids when she was 4 months old. Of course then it was a very small amount but now she just LOVES to eat. More often than not, I spend a lot of time preparing her food. Of course, I turn to store bought food when necessary. Sometimes, I'm just too tired or don't have the time to make a huge batch of baby food for the week. But, on most occasions, I prefer making her food myself.

I recently got the Infantino Baby Squeeze Station. I love having this and being able to make Olivia pouches. They are so easy for on the go - which I feel has been the case with our lives lately!

I recently spent about three hours (including grocery shopping) and made 40 pouches (4 flavors). Yes, it took time, but for that amount of pouches - I think it is totally worth it. And one of the flavors I even snack on myself! #momwin

For all of these recipes I used my Ninja to blend the ingredients. It worked perfect -

Apple, Sweet Potato, and Cinnamon

  • Preheat oven to 400 degree
  • Peel, prick, and roast 4 sweet potatoes until they are soft
  • Peel, core, and dice 2 apples
  • Blend apples and sweet potatoes together, along with a dash of cinnamon (you may need to add water to the mixture to blend)
  • Blend until desired consistency

Butternut Squash, Carrot, Banana, Avocado

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  • Cut squash in half and clean out the seeds and pulp
  • Dice 4 large carrots
  • Roast squash and carrots (for easy clean-up put tin foil on baking sheet) for about 40 minutes
  • After the vegetables cool, remove the skin from the squash
  • Blend squash and carrots together
  • Add two bananas to the mixture and blend together
  • Add two avocados to the mixture and blend
  • Add lime juice to prevent browning
  • Blend until desired consistency

Blueberry, Mango, Spinach, and Banana (my favorite)

  • Peel and dice 2 mangoes
  • Add 2 cups of blueberries and 2 bananas to the mangoes
  • Add a bag of spinach to the mixture
  • Blend until desired consistency

Apple, Spinach, Pea, and Basil

  • Steam a bag of peas according to package directions
  • Core, peel, and dice 2 apples
  • Blend peas and apples together
  • Add 3 basil leaves and blend
  • Add a bag of baby spinach to mixture, combine until desired consistency

    PS - If you are looking for other fun ways to use your Infantino Squeeze Station, I use them for my own smoothies and to store homemade guac!

    Remember when you are blending your mixture has to be able to fit through the small holes in the squeeze station (this is why I peel my apples). I've tried making this with the skin on but it would stick to the station and clog it.

    I hope you enjoy! If you have a favorite recipe I'd love to hear it!
